Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

2.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

3.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

4.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

5.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

6.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

9.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

10.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

11.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

12.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

13.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

14.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

15.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

16.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

17.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

18.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

19.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

20.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

21.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

22.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

23.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

24.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

25.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

26.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

27.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

28.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

30.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

33.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

35.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

36.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

37.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

38.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

39.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

40.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

41.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

42.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

43.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

44.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

45.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

46.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

47.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

48.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

49.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

50.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn
